Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense and Myrrh. In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. Palo Santo is traditionally burned in ceremonies by Shamans and Medicine people for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage. It creates a pleasant, fresh smelling smoke with hints of mint and citrus that work well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects. It provides an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to Source. Palo Santo is mostly used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, headaches, emotional pain and more… The oil can also be used during massage work to seal intentions while calling in Spirit Allies for support and protection. In essential oil form, it is great for physical pain and inflammation containing high levels of D-Limonene and Monotropenes that are useful for cancer symptoms. The best part of this magical tree is that it is wild crafted and sustainably harvested by a family that has planted over 30,000 trees back into the area over the last 10 years. The essential oil can only be extracted from dead trees and fallen branches using “Vapor Distillation” without the use of dangerous chemicals or solvents. This insures a high quality product cared for with Love and Respect. 7-12 sticks per pack.
